map_table.rows is not a function

map_table.rows is not a function

$("body").on 'click', "#map_button", ->
    console.log $('[id$=listings_map_table]')
    map_table = $('[id$=listings_map_table]').DataTable
    console.log map_table
    map_table.rows().every ->

The error is: Uncaught TypeError: map_table.rows is not a function

This is a page where the DataTable is created and drawn after the page is rendered based on user action. The table looks fine, and in my console I can see the object if I just spit the object to the console.

If I try to do an entire initialization, it tells me it can't reinitialize the table. But if I just do like the above, I get the ".rows is not a function" error.

What am I missing here?

    The syntax looks a little unusual - I'm guessing it is transpiled into Javascript, but I don't recognise it. What is it?

    $('[id$=listings_map_table]').DataTable
    

    should be:

    $('[id$=listings_map_table]').DataTable()
    

    is my guess, but it looks like whatever language it is, is trying to fill in parenthesis in places, and it isn't doing so there?

    This is CoffeeScript. You're the man, that worked immediately!
